The Cavalli Islands and an award-winning golf course are your backdrop with your accommodations nestled in a native forest overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Indulge in two full days of leisure, from golfing to tempting spa services, at the glorious New Zealand coastal retreat.



Then continue your New Zealand luxury tour in Taupo, at one of New Zealand’s finest recreational playgrounds. Fly fishing, golf, water skiing, jet boating, horse riding, sailing, and mountain biking are all available in the area.


Next, experience the Art Deco capital of New Zealand, Napier, within the heart of Hawke’s Bay Wine Country. Your New Zealand luxury tour allows for two days of relaxation, exploration, wine tasting, and cozy seaside views amid the undulating farmland and Hawke’s Bay.

Your New Zealand luxury tour then retreats north to 5,500 acres of private ancient forests, tranquil lakes, rivers, farmland, and the rugged coast in Wairarapa. Spend two full days here, touring the grounds and indulging in various cliff-side activities. Or rather, relax at the spa before bidding farewell to the North Island.


Finally, conclude your New Zealand luxury tour in Queenstown and Glenorchy. With secluded suites and uninterrupted views over Lake Wakatipu to the mountains beyond, a quiet lodge just minutes from bustling Queenstown is without a doubt the perfect end to your adventure. Take a jet boat trip up the Dart River to Mount Aspiring National Park. Enjoy a stunning helicopter flight over Milford Sound, an experience that is a must for any trip to New Zealand. There’s also a number of activities on the lake and in the surrounding national parks. The sights and scenery will infuse you with Kiwi spirit and warmth on your return journey.
